Contrary to recent Internet reports and rumors, Soaps.com has learned that Y&R's Executive Producer, Josh Griffith, has not been fired after all. Reps for the show are stating that he is in fact still with The Young and the Restless, and that he is still the Executive Producer.

Josh Griffith made big news back in the summer of 2008 when he took over the head writer position at The Young and the Restless during the writers' strike, a move that required him to go to 'financial core' status with the writers' guild.

Rumors were flowing earlier in the week that Josh had been removed from his post. A variety of reasons for the ouster were mentioned, including that he had been allowing actors to change scripts, and that he had been re-writing scripts penned by Maria Arena-Bell! It was also speculated that Gary Tomlin had replaced him.

Soaps.com is proud to bring you only the facts! So, here's to Josh continuing to do his best work at the #1 daytime drama, The Young and the Restless!

That article at soaps.com sounds like brown nosing to me.

This situation is starting to remind me of the AW/SOMERST debacle where PGP told THE CINCINNATI POST that AW characters Steve and Alice were going to crossover to SOMERSET for a possible storyline. However, that never happened and some of the wags at P&G later tried to claim that they never said anything to POST TV Critic (and forner radio soap scribe) Mary Wood about a possible crossover storyline. To make a long story short, Wood got THE POST's legal team involved in this situation and PGP back pedaled on some of their previuos claims and later gave La Wood and THE CINCINNATI POST some AW soap exclusives especially when it came to pictures of Steve and Alice's second wedding on the show.

Just my gut feeling, but I don't think we've heard the last of the Y&R Josh Griffith situation by a long shot.

Sharongate, bitches!

That soaps.com article is littered with inaccuracies. Gary Tomlin is at DAYS, and was never speculated to join Y&R and Griffith chose financial core status in November 2007 during the strike, not summer 2008. They essentially picked up what SOD reported and changed a few words. That's exactly why soaps.com has no reputation and shouldn't be in the soap news business.

You know that headache I had last night? Yea, well, it seems to have resurfaced again...what the hell is going on behind the scenes right before our very eyes???? I mean, why is it that the fucktacular events surrounding the backstage drama is more enticing and delicious than the actual program on TV??? Assbackwards, anyone?

So let me see if I have this straight.

Dena, who was scabbing, got OUT of trouble FOR scabbing by tattling on Ed Scott....

Ed Scott gets fired, for essentially doing Dena's job, because she sucks at it, on TOP of doing his own job...

Then Corday goes and hires ANOTHER scab, who produces AND writes, so that he can essentially do Dena's job, because she still sucks at it, ON TOP of doing HIS own job as well...

INSTEAD OF...

Just firing the common denominator in ALL of that, who is Dena, the queen of suckage.

Did I get all of that right? lol
